Mainstream media outlets, led by the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, have been pushing a new horror story in an attempt to paint Russia as the global evil mastermind.
According to the most recent fairy tailes by the NYT and WSJ, a Russian spy unit paid members of Afghanistan’s Taliban movement to conduct lethal attacks on US troops. As always, the story is based on anonymous sources and some mysterious ‘a classified American intelligence assessment’ and ‘people familiar with the report’.
All these reports emphasize that President Donald Trump and the White House have allegedly known for months about the supposed Russina actions, but have not authorized any response.
In fact, this story is just another variant of the rotten Russian collusion story to damage the Trump administration. From claiming that Donald Trump is cntrolled by Vladimir Putin almost directly, mainstream outlets shifted their narrative to claims that the Trump administration allegedly does nothing to protect US interests or hold a candle to ‘agressive Russian actions’. Nonetheless, the core point remains the same: ‘Donald Trump is a bad bad bad bad bad bad president, so, vote for a demorat in the election’. To push this narrative, they are even ready to push proaganda instigating a potential military escalation between Russia and the US.
Once again, the US foreign policy and national interests become a victim of the internal political games of the Washington establishment and neo-liberal propagandists.
